This guesthouse is one of many on a small street on the northern side of Arusha town. I bet they are all quite similar. But this one is about $10-15/night, self-contained, hot shower, simple breakfast (bread and fried eggs, chai/coffee), nice staff.

Yes it had a basic toilet that didn't flush and yes there was no air Con. But what do you expect for the price you pay. I recommend for those on a budget that want a bed, shower and toilet but don't want to stay at a backpackers. People were nice and food options across the road were good.

stayed here for one night, our room had 1 big bed, a squatting toilet, and no door for the bathroom, so the room smells a little bit like a bathroom! Clean & basic place to sleep. had breakfast the next morning, 1 egg, bread, jams,butter and tea & coffee. good enough to start the day!

We were 5 people plus the cook in the car so we were...

We stayed in Monjes Guesthouse twice - upon our arrival in Arusha and after returning from safari. Before taking the room, we checked several guesthouses along the street and Monjes seemed the best choice. The rooms were clean and hot water running. The staff was friendly and overall experience OK. That´s the reason we booked the rooms for the night...

My friends and I stayed at monjes lodge just before our trip up Kilimanjaro. The manager Brian, is a good bloke and well connected. He made our stay reasonably pleasant. We were taken to a true African night club and shown the traditional meal in Tanzania chips mei!
